Has Anyone Here Changed Their Legal Name?

To say my family was toxic is an understatement. Sometimes just hearing my full name is triggering. For years I've been playing around with the idea of changing it. Most of my friends are nons, and they say it's a silly idea. Recently though, it's become more appealing to me.

Earlier I was ruminating over the ugly past when I imagined what it might be like, for example, to fill out a form or an ...

Psychiatrists Don't Care

I been trying to find help emailing psychiatrists for help...none of them seem to bother answering me back for an appointment. I guess maybe I say too much and they don't want to deal with someone who has a history of being hospitalized for OCD, cutter, had failed past suicide attempts years ago, who has anger issues and is verbally abusive. Kind of hurts when you try to reach out to them and they never ...

Paranoia everyone is a sadistic rapist pretending

I survived being trafficked. A part of my abuse had a hate crime element to it. I often get paranoid that random survivors with DID are faking in order to find victims to abuse, or they may actually have DID but are preying on others with the disorder.

Stuff like this makes me feel like I'm not in touch with reality. Anyone else relate?

Hello, New here, and need to offload.....hoping for some sup

Hi to all

I've joined the forum as I need to put down how I am feeling, and hopefully get some support, advice, magic bullet or just a chat.

My life from age 26 to about 10 years ago (34 years) was spent full on, working for ...

The long road to recovery

I feel like recovering is taking forever. It's like I am fighting two different personalities. One personality wants me to reduce my medication dose; the other wants me to keep it the same or possibly raise it. This sounds like Bipolar, but I think I have schizoaffective or schizophrenia. I was once told by a Bipolar patient in the psychiatric unit that Bipolar involves one's mind being split into two "sides", and that the two ...

Does anyone else find interaction so hard?

does anyone relate? Knows ways to cope?

(it's the first time I post here I hope this is ok)

I think years ago I was just shy but now I really don't care about what other people's judgment could be, yet I speak even less.

Simply getting a word out is tiring and seems unnecessary. Explaining stuff is exhausting and difficult.
Words can feel so heavy that I have to speak slowly.
Other times ...
